“This is who Donald Trump is: a loser who gets beat by over 7 million votes and then instead of appealing to a wider mainstream audience doubles down on his threats of political violence,” said Biden campaign spokesman James Singer. “He wants another January 6, but the American people are going to give him another electoral defeat this November because they continue to reject his extremism, his affection for violence, and his thirst for revenge.”

At multiple points in his speech Trump repeated the debunked claim that he was cheated out of a win in the 2020 presidential election.

Biden won both the popular and Electoral College vote and multiple investigations, court rulings and election audits found no evidence that Biden was not the legitimate winner.

Trump said the Nov. 5 election will be the most important date in U.S. history.

“I don’t think you’re going to have another election in this country if we don’t win this election,” Trump said."

Threats like that are NOT even remotely acceptable.

It disgusts me thoroughly that legal action may not be taken against this filthy fascist traitor for deliberately attempting to incite political violence intended to collapse democracy and empower him as a DICTATOR.

True story: I was at Lowes this morning and in the checkout line, the guy in front of me was wearing a brand new trump 24 hat. I said to him that's a nice hat ya got there, how much did ya pay for it? He told me he didn't pay anything for it. So I asked how the hell did you get a free trump hat and his answer was "All I had to do was donate $200 to his campaign and they gave me the hat." Yep they're that fuckin' stupid.

"During Lara Trump’s interview, Alex Stein used a baby doll to pretend to punt a baby off his set.

Afterwards, Stein lit the doll on fire, slammed it, repeatedly hit it in the head with a “Biden” shoe, advised having babies smoke, and threatened to light the doll’s hand on fire."

"During his Lara Trump interview episode, Blaze host Alex Stein led his "chat rats," those loyal fans who post comments on his livestreams, in a pledge to riot against government buildings if Stein commands them to. Stein led his followers in the oath after Lara Trump left the set. "

"At that point, Stein's producer, Jimmy, interrupted in an attempt to redirect Stein by suggesting he shouldn't be saying this on the air. Stein then doubled down on his call for his followers to be willing to attack government buildings"

Trump is convinced his cult members are going to destroy the country if he doesn't win. A few of them will just go up and shoot up schools, like they do now.

I get such a kick out of Trump and the Republican ecosphere talking about the "woke FBI" and how they are enemies of the state. He's not wrong! The MAGAts are too stupid to know that the FBI has ALWAYS been stacked with Republicans from the top down. That's why Obama appointed a Republican as head of the FBI. I don't think a Democrat has ever been in charge of the FBI.

Sam Bankman Fried, the crypto crook, was secretly a Republican? How shocking!

"Days after his crypto empire collapsed in November 2021, Sam Bankman-Fried was already contemplating his comeback by working the media.

One of his top priorities? “Go on Tucker Carlsen, come out as a republican,” SBF wrote in a typo-filled document to himself revealed by federal prosecutors on Friday. The prolific Democratic donor — in fact, the second-largest donor to the Biden 2020 campaign — would say that he was actually on the other team and the whole thing was an act. He would explain that “while public contributions show one thing, you see another thing [when] including super pacs,” then “come out against the woke agenda,” and then “talk about how the cartel of lawyers is destroying value and throwing entrepreneurs under the bus in order to cover up the incompetence of lawyers.”"

Yes, it's kind of like how "Democrat" Jamie Dimon is saying "you know, Trump really did have some good ideas." LOL, sure, Trump is just full of good ideas, like rounding up the immigrants who do the grunt work in this country. I guess Dimon will be out there picking my tomatoes for me to make up for the loss of workers.

The WaPo's latest Cletus Safari ventured to a trailer park in Arizona, where residents are going to vote for Trump because they're mad their rent got raised.

This. Fucking. Country.

Very recently corporations are buying up the trailer parks all over the place, then tripling the rent, impoverishing my good friend who lives in one. She did just fine before that, now she has to scramble to afford basic necessities. She owns the trailer outright but the new rent takes 80 percent of her income, and she can't afford the $10,000 to relocate it. It's a national problem.

It's like the opinion column I read where this asshole was complaining about Biden because his auto and homeowner's insurance policies went through the roof.

EVERYONE's home insurance is going up to pay for the costs of the floods in TX, LA, and FL. Also, too, the fires in TX and FL, the hurricanes in Indiana and Ohio, the floods in PA, etc..

It's fairly breathtaking how an unqualified presidential candidate from NYC, with a lifelong record of being a liar and a crook, has totally taken over one of our two political parties. He's totally bent them to his will.

Glitch McConnell made the mistake of thinking the rubes would turn on Trump after he blatantly staged a coup, which was a stunning display of anti-Americanism. He didn't feel the need to indict him, assuming the courts would take care of Trump. I guess he forgot how he'd personally stolen the courts and turned them into partisan hack, kangaroo courts.
